Musk oxen, whose population declined in the 19th and 20th centuries, were introduced to Nunivak Island in the 1930's by the US Fish and Wildlife Services. The herd thrived, and some decendents were moved to establish herds in other parts of Alaska. This musk ox is 1⅛ inches high and 1¼ inches wide. The fabric cord is adjustable from 18 to 36 inches. Bronze. Made in USA.

We also offer a range of woolens, knitted from qiviut, the under-fur of musk ox and one of the warmest, softest woolens available: Qiviut Woolens.

  • Cavin Richie

    Cavin Richie grew up in Colorado surrounded by the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains. He moved to Washington State in 1970 and has lived near the sea ever since. Cavin's designs are a reflection of his surroundings. His line includes birds, mammals and amphibians, all accurately detailed. For the past thirty years he has carved with shed elk antler and woolly mammoth ivory. These carvings became the basis for his lost wax casting jewelry.

    "Carving," says Cavin "is like touching antiquity. I feel a kinship with a long lineage of carvers dating back to the Pleistocene."

    We are pleased to offer these solid bronze lost wax castings. A patina complements the earthy metal, giving each piece a unique finish.
